Haunted Happenings in Harrodsburg, Kentucky

Ghost stories have always fascinated me.  As a child I remember sitting around campfires at camp, listening to these stories and relishing the chill down my spine. This fascination carried over into adulthood and I look for ghost tours whenever I visit someplace new.   During a recent visit to Harrodsburg, Kentucky, Brittany and I were invited to attend the Harrodsburg Ghost Walk. We met under the Osage Orange Tree at Old Fort Harrod State Park and met our tour guides, Jan Lewis and Graham Martin, who were dressed in period costume.  I was disappointed when I realized we were the only two attending the tour and Jan told us, “Since you are the only two people attending tonight, I have a proposition for you.” I was sure she was going to tell me we could cancel the tour if we wanted, but instead she said, “How would you like to do a mini investigation at the Mansion of Governor Magoffin?”

Fun for the Family at Azul Beach Hotel, Riviera Maya

The Riviera Maya has always been one of my favorite vacation destinations so when I was invited to attend the #NickExperience at the Azul Beach Hotel for my friend Scarlet at Family Focus Blog, I was excited beyond words. First impressions matter and the Azul Beach by Karisma has got it covered.  I was greeted by the front desk staff who offered me a cool refreshing scented towel and a Slime Smoothie to beat the heat.
